FRYBERGER. ???W The Tree to Plant and Its Care. Extracts from a paner read by H. M Nickerson, of Nora Springs, befor the lowa Horticultural Society. This paper is not intended for the instruction of experienced orchardists but the suggestions found here that may be correct and beneficial to the cause of horticulture are intended for the inexperienced and „ beginners in horticultural pursuits. For the purposes of this article trees willbe divided into three classes for windbreak, for beauty and shade, and for the orchard or fruit. Be sure to locate your windbreak far enough from your buildings so that when fully grown it will not interfere with them, or our necessary yards. Your windbreak should be on the west and north, and your shade trees eaat and south. Lay out your ground plow deep and harrow until it is as mellow as a garden, so that it can be cultivat- ed easily on the west side row north and south, on the north row east and west. The white willow is a very hardy, fast growing tree and willgrow thick in the row, making a windbreak very fast and cheap. I would plant the two outside rows 8 feet apart with the willow. The best way is to pre- pare cuttings six or eight inches long and stick them one foot apart in the row very early in the spring. White pine, red cedar, and Norway and white spruce are strong, hardy trees. The two next rows 1 would plant with white pine and Norway spruce, alter- nating in the row, the two inside rows to white spruce, and red cedar. The rows of evergreens should be at least sixteen feet apart and the trees eight to ten feet apart in the row. Plant none but nursery grown trees from fifteen to twenty-four inches high. When the trees are received from the nursery, handle them with eare, keep them wet, don’t expose to the sun or wind, plant with care about the depth grown in the nursery. Raise com or other cultivated crop between rows (not close enough to shade the trees), cultivate your trees and your crop thoroughly and in a few years you willhave not only something that mitigates the severity of the storms in winter but that is a thing of beauty as well. All our varities of cherries are a practical failure in this climte, and I think it better for the farmer to leave experimenting with new varie- ties to the expert, hoping that some of the importations or the prod, c ion of seedlings will in the near future produce a tree that will stand the changes of our cimate, and be as hardy as the Oldenberg, apple, so that we can once more enjoy this health- full, pleasant and delicious fruit. It is my deliberate judgment that with the continued thought and care given to the other crops, the apple and plum can be successfully grown, and when the trees become to bear- ing age they willbe far more profit- able than the crops we usually raise on our farms. The flrut thing to be considered in j planting orchard trees is the site, and this, if a few acres for family use, must necessarily be within a reason- able distance of the buildings. It is nearly universally agreed by experi- enced horticulturists that high rolling laud, northeast, and east slope of same (with good strong soil) makes the most desirable location. This, I thii\fc, is correct, but an orchard is needed on every farm and few are so fortunate as to have at hand near their dwellings just such a desirable location. This is simply given as a guide for the best. In fixing our site iwe should come as near such condi- -1 tions as our surroundings willadmit. Fence your ground with strong wire fence, plow deep and thoroughly pul- verize the soil; and make your rows straight, running them north and ¦ south, thirty-five feet apart. Set your I trees about twelve feet apart in the rows. Straight rows are pleasing to the j eye and an advantage in cultivation. This distance, thirty-fiye feet between rows is, I think, desirable, because it leayes space sufficient between them for a free circulation of air, one of the main things sought after in an . elevated site. When you purchase be sure to order No. 1 trees. This is important. The small planter has no I use for poor trees. Don’t buy of the itinerant tree peddler, of whose an- tecedents you know nothing, and 4hoee employer (if he has one) may be engaged in swindling the commun- ity with high priced novelties unsuit- ed to this climate. Such persons are abroad in the land and they are one of the great hinderances tocuccessful orcharding in the north. Most of the selling from nurseries as now man- aged, is done l»y traveling aoleeman. rt’iep buy of them be sure that they represent a reliable nursery. As a rule it is best to buy of your nearest home nursery. Here the question arises, “what is a first-class apple tree when delivered to the planter?” A first-class tree should be one that is taken from the ground in a careful manner with plen- ty of root to correspond with the size of the top.'*lt should be sound, free from bruises, and should not have been exposed to the sun or drying winds. The top should be in size pro- portioned to its height and age, the stem tapering from the ground to the top, the limbs coming out in regular order at least three inches apart, to avoid forks and splitting. I prefer trees three or four years old. Avoid large trees, they make extra work, and are liable not to give satisfaction. When the ground is wet and soggy is a very poor time to set trees. There is plenty of moisture in the soil in the spring, and don’t be afraid of dry weather. This last remark does not apply to evergreens. Your trees should be set just about the time the buds begin to swell. If received before, heel them in and let them wait. This is done by digging a trench twelve or eighteen inches wide and about a foot deep. Take your trees one at a time and stand them up in the trench, lean- ing to the south and wetting the roots thoroughly. Work loose earth among the roots and fill the trench rounding I full with earth. It is best to have an assistant in setting trees; one to dig the hole and hold the tree in position, and the other to boss the job and fill the earth about the roots. Dig the : holes plenty large to receive the roots and deep enough so that the tree I when set will be four to six inches I deeper than in the nursry, leaving a little loose earth in the center of the hole, making the bottom somewhat the shape of an inverted tea saucer. : Wash from the roots any dry earth that may adhere from any cause, leaving the roots thoroughly wet. Put your trees in the hole with the heaviest limbs to the south, lean three or four inches to the south, spread the roots to a natural position, fill in moist, loose earth with your hands, j at the same time about the roots till, they are well covered; then stamp, using your spade and feet. Finish filling with good clean earth, (not sods or trash), tramp the earth until within two inches of the top, fill that with fine rich soil and leave it loose. Don’t use any water except to wash ' the roots. I give this direction with I great confidence, having set out some three hundred and fiftyorchard trees within the last eight years, and but 1 three of them failed to grow, and' they were marked disabled when set. . In allour handling of trees, digging, j removing, setting and care afterwards, it) is well to bear in mind this fact, i well known blit often ignored, that a tree is a thing of lifethat has its youth, middle age and old age, and that it dies. That an injury given is a shocic to its vitality according to the sever- ity of the injury, about the same as in animal life, but unlike the animal it cannot run away. This rightly in terpreted, means be careful how you handle and care for your trees at all times. Do not bruise with plow, har- row or whiffletree, do not let your horses, cattle or sheep gnaw or break them. If you eut a limb, know just the reason why, or keep your knife j in your pocket. The after care of an orchard you will learn by experience. Perhaps the borer may trouble you, some of your trees will blight, others persist in growing to the northwest. We all! have such troubles, but they do not' ail come at once and are slight; con- sult those having experience, they . will help yon. I would advise the continued raising of cultivated crops in your orchard, such as eom, pota- toes, pumpkins, etc. I plant mine in sweetcorn. Tried mulching my old- est trees t>ut it was not satisfactory. Clean cultivation has several advant- ages among them are, your trees will grow faster and there is less danger of insect enemies. For varieties, consult those having experience in your locality. CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENTS. Presbyterian Church. Rev. D. 8. Brown, Paator. Preaching service every Sunday at 10:30 a. m. and 7:30 p. m.
